I sincerely appreciate you bringing us all together.
However, for a world that is so big you somehow make it feel so small.
Please do something about this and the fact that my young adolescent cousin deems it appropriate to swear and be somewhat scandalous (does she realize its a fishbowl, everyone can see what she writes?!) on her profile.

Does anyone else feel like FB has more negative aspects than good ones? I was chatting with my mom a few days ago and she was telling me that not everyone you meet is suppose to stay in your life; regardless of what facebook and other social outlets of the sort may claim/instigate. It was a “ah ha” moment for me. My mother has never been more right about anything. I blindly have been under the influence of facebook and all its mind games that I had begun to think that it was important for me to keep tabs on people, even those I don’t really like. Its difficult not to when their status’, pics, and comments are shoved in your face on a daily basis. It can sometimes feel as though you cannot get away, especially from those who you so desperately need to get away from. I have even gone as far to “hide” certain people from popping up in my newsfeed; sound pitiful, well sure it is but it has saved/preserved my sanity. You all know what I’m talking about…who really wants to see pics of thier ex’s actually enjoying the fruits of life without you?!?! Am I right or am I right? 🙂
Anyways, I started thinking about all this facebook nonsense mainly because an acquaintance recently posted something on their livefeed which I found to be terribly offensive, (rude enough to get me to respond) and I then started questioning things such as etiquette and manners. Some people seem to have forgotten that just because you are in the land of “virtual socializing” does not mean its okay to name call and or belittle others. And lastly, just because I didn’t vote the way you think I and the rest of the state should have, does not mean I don’t understand the opponents practices and beliefs – I can “THINK” perfectly fine, thank you very much.
Ha well now that felt good! Thanks for listening to me vent everyone. Thoughts on this?
